Company Adds World's Largest Retailer to Growing List of Key Distributors, Nationwide Partners

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Feb 26, 2016) - React Mobile, a leader in personal safety, today announced that its React Sidekick, a Bluetooth panic button to quickly and remotely activate an alert without the need to find, unlock and dial from a phone that may not be within reach, is now available for purchase on Walmart.com, the world's largest retailer. The React Sidekick pairs with the free React Mobile safety app to provide peace of mind and is the fastest way to reach a wide network when it matters most.

React Mobile was the first to bring a panic button to market following a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2014. Since then, the company has secured key national partners such as such as Take Back the Night and is a Featured Safety Provider in the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) REALTOR® Safety Program. React Mobile also has exclusive commercial contracts with Seattle University, Occidental College, Windermere Real Estate and BNSF Railway.

"People may have heard of or even tried other solutions, but none of them can compete with our React Sidekick and safety app," said Robb Monkman, CEO, React Mobile. "It's gratifying to now have our product available on another major ecommerce site such as Walmart.com as we continue to gain adoption from key alliances with prominent colleges, real estate firms and local athletic groups to help ensure their safety. We'll continue our national roll out this year with additional industry leading partners and distributors."

The Sidekick is a low energy Bluetooth Smart (4.0) panic button. Its modular, gender-neutral design makes it accessible to anyone. The device is perfect for those with an active lifestyle and brings peace of mind when: running alone, walking at night, meeting new clients, dating or alerting a wide network of family and friends whenever a phone is locked and out of reach. The Sidekick can be worn on a clip or keychain and is also a great tool for children and teens to easily call for help in an emergency.

The React Mobile safety app is completely free to download and is a simple yet powerful way to enhance personal safety. Users can easily activate React Mobile's "Follow-Me" location sharing service and rest assured that people in their emergency network are tracking they're whereabouts in real-time whenever they're concerned about safety. When the Sidekick is activated, friends and family will receive a "Help Me" alert text message and email that includes a link to the users GPS location. Users can also choose to automatically post their alerts to Facebook and Twitter to let an even wider network of contacts know where they are and that they need help.
